    January 30, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – After thirty-three years of abortion-on-demand in the US, abortion activists are saying they can feel their grip on the country starting to slide away.

    "I think [Roe vs. Wade] in the short term will be dismantled," said Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, to Reuters. "We have an anti-choice president, an anti-choice Congress and now ... with the confirmation of Judge Alito to the Supreme Court, we are seeing the potential for a very right-leaning, anti-choice Supreme Court."

    Judge Samuel Alito’s nomination to the Supreme Court has given pro-life advocates concrete hope that Roe vs. Wade, the 1973 judicial activist decision to make abortion a constitutional right, may finally be overturned. There are many other factors, however, which are contributing to the sense among both pro-life and pro-abortion groups that the balance is beginning to shift toward the side of life.

    Good. :thumbs:

    Abortion should be an issue for the states to handle, not the federal government.

    As much as I disagree with abortion, I have always felt it was a states rights deal. I heard Judge Robert Bork give a good talk on that years ago.

    No state should be allowed to slaughter children.
